PDP condemns Presidency’s statement on Plateau massacre…Demands apologies from Buhari

PDP national chairman, Uche Secondus
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as condemned as extremely callous, inhuman and brazenly divisive, the statement by the Presidency on the gruesome massacre of hundreds of innocent Nigerians in Plateau state last Sunday.

The PDPsaid it is shocked that at the time Nigerians expected the Presidency to take immediate steps to restore order, safeguard the lives of the people, exert justice and bring succor to victims, the Buhari Presidency toed the path of divisiveness, which is capable of worsening the tensed situation in the state.

"It is unfortunate that rather than taking actions to get to the roots of killings and banditry in the land, President Muhammadu Buhari resorted to political colorations by engaging in his usual blame game of unnamed politicians," the PDP said in a statement signed by its national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan.

The leading opposition party said furtehr: "It is equally disgusting that the Buhari Presidency relegated the main issue of the murder of our citizens and how to track down the perpetrators and bring them to book, thus confirming the fears of most Nigerians that this administration does not care about the lives of the people.

"PDP insists that the basic responsibility of government, which is to ensure the safety and harmonious living of all Nigerians, ensure that our laws apply at all times and circumstances, without any fear or favour, has been completely abdicated by the Buhari administration, thereby leaving our people at the mercy of marauders.

"Moreover, it is shocking that the President, as the father of our nation had no soothing or reassuring words for the agonizing victims of the attack but aggravated their pains with the unguarded comments attributed 
to him by his media aide."

The PDP therefore demanded for an unreserved apology from President Buhari for his comments and manifest insensitivity to the plight of the victims of the Plateau massacre.
